Slow slow internet loading

Anyone help with a pc problem I have? It takes forever to load a page from the internet, sometimes as long as 2 or 3 minutes during which time the mouse/cursor is inoperative. The problem has got slowly worse over the last couple of weeks. On non internet operation everything is fine and fast. I've checked modem speeds, which are 0.51mb download and 0.23mb upload. I have Vista and MS Internet Browser. Any clues folks? Thanks for any help, Sarumboy.

have you cleared your Internet Cache?

Use C Cleaner click here

to clear the temporary internet files and clean the registry.

Have you power of the modem and power it back on

Try right clicking local area connection and press repair.If it comes up with a DNS cache problem go into command prompt and type in ipconfig /flushdns [small gap after ipconfig and forward slash or it will not work] Press enter and it should come up saying DNS cache has been flushed.

Thanks for your replies fellas, but Buteman, where do I find 'local area connection'?

Hi Sarumboy.
Try Control Panel - Network Connections

Sorry, should have said double click on Network Connections and then right click Local Area Connections
